Reports about the death of newspapers may be greatly exaggerated
Despite my entry into the universe of on-line commentary, I must admit that I remain an ink-stained wretch at heart. So it warms my soul to learn data compiled by the World Association of Newspapers indicate that, despite what you may have read in newspapers, newspapers most certainly are not in a terminal state. Money quote: "The fashion of predicting the death of newspapers should be exposed for... nothing more than a fashion, based on common assumptions that are belied by the facts."
